Biografía

As a 2nd generation resident in District 8, I have lived in the area for over 23 years. Watched District 8 grow and mature, but it has never lost its priorities focusing on education, families and its senior residents. We watched commercial growth intertwine with the planned community and we have had strong leadership for more than 50 years. To ensure District 8 priorities are protected, I find it necessary to throw my hat into the political arena. The City of Sacramento continues to grow and change, but must never forget its youth, families and senior communities. I am asking for your vote residents of District 8. As a real estate Broker, I want to make sure the City of Sacramento thrives, but not at the expense of our youth, families and senior community. The residents of District 8 can count on me to represent their interest and I will make it my fiduciary duty to protect your welfare above my own. Homeownership is priority for all even the homeless and Sacramento needs to adopt a Housing First Policy for all those living in Sacramento. Our people and youth are our most valuable assets. Protect them by voting for me in District 8.

Preguntas y Respuestas

Preguntas de The Sacramento Bee (3)

Sacramento County has an estimated 5,570 homeless people on any given night, mostly unsheltered and mostly in the city. What are three things you would do to address this growing crisis? Where would you get the funding?
Respuesta de Daphne Harris:

Housing First is the model I would adopt to get more than 75% of the homeless off the street today.  The standard hotel/motel structures have confirmed we can House 100 families of 4 for one year with $3,395,000.  This is in Sacramento’s budget today.  While temporarily housing these individuals, we can provide wrap around services to those in need or with mental challenges.  Secondly, we can build tiny homes in areas such as the Sacramento County Regional Sanitation District off Hwy 5.  This location provides healthy options and we can build pilots to test out renewable energy support solutions in this area, such as solar convection ovens, electric toilets which run on water generated power sources and wind generated options as well.  There are other prefab options to house the homeless in this location.  City partnering with business would produce the funding.  We need to get back to expecting a return on investment (ROI) on every dollar spent by government.  If there is no return there should be no expenditure.  Again this should be the LAW.  Last those who are chronically homeless may do better with the encampment model which is less than 25% of the homeless population.  They have develop habits and coping skills to survive outdoors.  They will require more resources and services to break habits they have developed on the streets for many years.  Again in other large and small cities the Housing First model works best to tackle this issue.

Sacramento has a serious shortage of affordable housing. What are three things you would do to help create more affordable housing in the city? Where would you get the funding? 
Respuesta de Daphne Harris:

The best way to attract developers to the area is to have a well planned community.  Most affordable housing projects are still not affordable.  The rent threshold between $850/mo and $1,200/mo are the sweet spot in today’s market for affordable housing.  This still is not affordable for those making minimum wage or seniors solely on social security.  Outside of California, developers are building communities were senior housing is the central portion of housing with cabana style homes than on the next Circle there are low income houses, so children can live close to senior independent living parents than the outer perimeter is commercial and/or industrialized.  This allows for tier structures in housing prices, so seniors and low income housing is offset by the commercial and industrial property taxes.  In this model everyone wins and resources are shared rather than a few benefiting while the others suffer.  This is just one idea.  Secondly, would hold a housing conference to bring the best ideas to the capital city and determine the best use of our land resources.  Thirdly, approach all businesses in California with positive P&L’s to give back to the State in a trust fund for affordable housing and approaching new builders and having them pay an additional fee into the trust as well.  If you profit in California, you must re-invest in California it should be the Law.

The city is now receiving roughly $50 million in new revenue a year from the Measure U sales tax increase voters approved in November 2018. What are three projects/areas you'd like to see the money spent on?
Respuesta de Daphne Harris:

24/7 Youth and Educational Sports Complex built on 32 acres in District 7 & District 8 at 2812 Meadowview Road partnering with the non-profit Organization CLIMB.  This facility would be key to prove to our kids we are making a commitment to their future.  It would generate its own income and sustain itself.  It would be EBT Friendly and have laundry facilities available for those in need.  PAL and SAL would reside there and officers would be allowed to workout for free.  Second a vocational and reintroduction program to increase the skilled trade workers over the next 10 years we will loose more than 1/2 of our skilled workers with no replacement structure.  Lastly, investing in STEM and coding efforts to give our youth a path to career and employment.

Stopping Homeless by 2022 in Sacramento with Dignity

Summary

The paper will cover our Vision focusing on housing, education and employment!  Reasons to elect Daphne Harris Sacramento City Council District 8!

Sacramento has $1.2 billion dollars in resources and has lost its vision when it comes to taking care of its residents.  Women and children going first and looking out for those less fortunate are rules we’ve grown up on.  Let’s all go back to following the ‘Golden Rule’. Do unto others as you would have them do unto you.  Sacramento needs a bigger Vision that others can step into.

This Vision is committing to the Youth in Districts 7 & 8 a permanent Youth and Educational Center located at 2812 Meadowview Road.  This facility would reside on the 32 acres owned by the City of Sacramento and would House non-profits focusing on the Youth.  Headed by the organization CLIMB, this facility would bring the community and law enforcement together in a positive and productive way.  The facility would be EBT Friendly and contain basketball courts, football fields, a film school, computer lab, vocational school and training, office space and conference rooms.  This facility would draw people to Districts 7 & 8.  Law enforcement would have the ability to workout at no cost encouraging positive interactions between them and the Community.

This concept is proven in other urban areas and Sacramento needs to shift its priorities.  The additional initiative needed in Sacramento is a ‘Housing First’ model in the City of Sacramento.  They need to partner with the Sacramento County Regional Sanitation District to create a tiny village on the land near the Delta Shores shopping center.  This would allow the City of Sacramento to create safe spaces for the homeless community with utilities and energy provided through Renewables solar, wind and water.

This would draw positive planned communities to the Sacramento area.  Additionally, the housing development model should be created like a bullseye.  1). The center should be our most vulnerable the Seniors in cabana style homes; 2) than the next layer would be affordable housing for the young to live close to their active and aging parents; 3) the outer ring could consist of commercial and industrial properties serving as an outer protective and economically viable community allowing those to work close to both home and aging parents.  This model has proven to be both desireable and practical for sustainable and thriving communities.  These are just a few of our best in class ideas to bring to the District 8 seat and why the residents of District 8 in Sacramento should elect Daphne Harris for Sacramento City Council.
